TROPICAL WAVE IN THE COMMUNITY
The Chorus’s ensemble Tropical Wave performs in community locations to expand the reach of our music and our mission to even more people. Local churches, community events, nonprofits, businesses and more have engaged Tropical Wave over the years.
My Story…My Song
Reflecting from a variety of experiences from their youth, an ensemble of the Chorus will present their stories and songs to area students, then follow their concert with a facilitated talk-back session with the audience. With a goal of empowering LGBTQ youth in their school setting, and providing positive role models, MY Story…My Song is the Chorus’ commitment to the next generation.
The Howard Kaplan Young Conductor Program
Supported generously by donor, Howard Kaplan, this project will engage a talented young musician from the South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble in a series of conducting workshops with Harold Dioquino and Jason Strunk. In March, the young conductor will take the stage and lead the Chorus in one of its songs, and also receive a scholarship for continued study.
COLLABORATING FOR OUR NIGHT OUT!
The Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida is joining forces with the Stonewall National Museum & Archives and Island City Stage for a two-year initiative focused on building the arts profile of the LGBTQ community in the region. This exciting collaboration will feature pop-up performances, community events, pre-event discussions, and cross-marketing strategies. This creative partnership is funded as part of the James S. and John L. Knight Foundation. 2016-2017 will be the launch of this exciting initiative which will generate new audiences for LGBTQ arts.
THE CHORUS IN THE COMMUNITY
In addition to the music the Chorus brings to the community, they also bring their helping hands! Each season, members of the Chorus take on community volunteer projects to support our fellow nonprofits.
Chorus members have supported Poverello, Broward Health, Broward House, SunServe and many other organizations. Requests for Chorus volunteers and performances can be made through the online booking form below.
